FINALLY! My wedding invitations are done! (non-passport/non-boarding pass)

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies! Last weekend we made our wedding invitations and they got sent out this week. Yes, I know, it's early, but we thought that it would be nice for everyone to have lots of time. Anyway, my mom and I spent a few weeks deciding on a design and came up with this. I have to say, that the FI was very helpful. He helped me decide on the wording and colors. He also designed the return address label, which I'll have to get a picture of - it's really cute.

 

For the invitation itself, I bought white 8.5 x 11" cardstock from Micheals for $9.00. All I did was make a design using Word and print it on the cardstock. Super easy. It may not be the best quality, but it works for our budget! lol

 

The RSVP were ordered from VistaPrint. We used one of their pictures for the front, added some text to the front and back and voila, a great, CHEAP RSVP! Everyone adores the postcard idea! My aunt and cousins who helped put the invites together wanted to keep the postcard so I had to give them an extra one! lol Anyway, the cost for this was 100 postcard for $10.

 

All in all, it didn't cost us too much. We hand delivered what we could and bought some stamps for the rest.

 

I don't have pictures of the envelopes yet, but when I do, I'll add them to the post.

 

It was lots of fun making the invitations and making decisions on everything. I can't wait for the next DIY project!

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
